WHAT IS SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainability is the property of biological systems to remain diverse and productive indefinitely. Sustainable seafood is defined as seafood that is either wild caught or farmed in a way that cannot only sustain current populations, but thrive over the long term and in which the methods the seafood is harvested or raised must not cause undue harm to their natural ecosystems. Coastal Seafoods strongly believes that embracing the use of sustainable seafood is one of the best ways we can all contribute to our oceans’ health and we strive to achieve a high level of sustainability standards.
OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
Coastal Seafoods continues to be committed to selling the best quality, most responsibly sourced seafood, while providing as much pertinent information to our customers as possible. Sustainability is a difficult and complex issue, but our philosophy is best reflected in conjunction with The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) who states that, “Seafood sustainability is necessary to meet today’s needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs”.
This means harvesting or farm raising seafood responsibly with consideration for the long-term health of the environment and the livelihood of the people that depend on the environment.
At Coastal Seafoods and Fortune Fish & Gourmet, we work with a variety of organizations, including Sea Pact and the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership, in order to make sure that we're doing our part to help maintain the livelyhood of our oceans.
